    Who in their right mind would waste any of their time reading the rags they try to pass off for newspapers today. They are filled with more lies and propaganda than what a comrade would read in Russia. The myth of global warming as presented by dim witted money hungry politicians. did you know gore used more electricity in just one of his homes than what is used in 232 average homes. Is he that much better and more deserving than you or me? Obama for president, come on there isn't one place on Planet Earth where blacks are in control that is even civilized much less progressive. If your white take a little stroll with your favorite girl in Detroit or St. Louis after dark. YIKES SOMEONES GETTING RAPED AND SOMEONES GETTING ROBBED. People are tired of the trash newspapers try to pass of as news and truth and that is it in a nutshell. Bye Bye Trashy Rags..

    LA Times is just another liberal bastion of lies ….. that is why it is hemorrhaging money. All of these liberal newspapers are losing support, therefore, money to run its enterprise. Good riddance!

    9/11 took place for a reason. So that the US would respond by attcking and starting a war they can't win. In turn the war is costing the US heaps of money and causing a recession. This is what the Taliban wants. George Bush should be executed.

    Canada's parliament asked for a new investigation into 9/11 because they don't buy the bullshit story our government has given them. Realize of all the suspected hijackers that the media posted on television and print for months, none were found to actually be involved. Find out what else you don't know about at www.infowars.com

    Super fuck you i hope you die slow,i am typing with my cellphone that what the errow is.my blackberry 8700 is fucking up.so dont bring that your not american bullshit cause i will kill you.BROOKLYN NY all day.



  40. 40

    Why would someone wish the Tribune Company to go under? They have been around for over a hundred years providing quality print journalism to LA, Chicago, Baltimore and Orlando. Plus they employ thousands. For those of you who say newspapers will die are wrong, newspaper will continue to thrive if they adapt to change and create unique ways to provide content to their users. There is still a market for them, I'm 25 and read the paper everyday and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Maybe before you make your stupid comments, you will do a little research.

    46

    so i guess starbucks, newspapers, and real estate are all declining because of Bush and those damn Republicans…gimme a break
    1) starbucks cannibalized its business for years and got away with it until every fast food chain came out with better coffee drinks for cheaper!
    2)the only thing keeping newspapers afloat for years has been classified ads! what did they think would happen now that people can place ads for FREE online instead of paying ridiculous fees for a tiny ad.
    3)the majority of these homes getting forclosed on were built by morons who got carried away with the "housing boom" and built mansions in the middle of nowhere!!!

    reality sucks, but its easy to blame Bush when his ratings are low….

    MCCAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Those who say that Bush's policies have not lead to this weak economy were the same ones who blamed Bill Clinton if the sky turned cloudy in the 1990s. Of course the President bears some responsibility for economic conditions - particularly when they have been President for 7.5 years.

    Re: Just – you know, bush also brought change. and he preached change. so we got "change". perhaps not just slurring what everyone is slurring on the bandwagon might put this country in better shape. people like you probably voted for bush anyway.

    Re: nycit – The economy didn't start turning shitty until the Dumocratic controlled Congress, who has more power than the President, took over two years ago. Taxing people more and sticking businesses with regulation don't help an economy. That's what dems are all about. Open your eyes douche.

    Re: goods – There is really no need to get person, I was just making a point. In 5-10 years, there will still be newspapers, trust me, people like myself, our parents and grandparents will still be reading them. They may not be like the newspapers were reading today, but they will reflect the style of newspapers 80-100 years ago.

    When dumb Obama gets elected you will see more of these useless papers go out of business. No one cares for these leftist pseudo communist newspapers anymore.

    It's really really funny how conservatives complain about 'liberal news rags' and whatever, but they continue to read this website, probably one of the bastions of unintelligent, useless and spiteful 'journalism' ever conceived. If you are 'conservative', then why the hell are you reading a website full of crotch shots and other useless shit?

    Re: Clare
    First off, I don't consider Perez a journalist, he's a gossip columnist. He doesn't try (that hard) to shape public opinion by slanted reporting of news, other than celebrity gossip, which nobody gives a shit about anyway. I think your stereotype of a typical "conservative" is completely out of whack.. we like to read unintelligent celeb gossip just as much as the wheat-grass drinking, birkenstock wearing, tree hugging liberals :)

    69

    Perez you fagtard. It's a great day for the US, a bad day for newspapers that want to print and drive a liberal agenda rather than print the news. Nobody buys their shit anymore. Maybe if they would stick to just reporting news, they would become relevant again.

    71

    The whole point is that conservatives are supposed to be concerned with family values and morals and the destruction of America by gays and non-Christians but in reality, they are hypocrites who read celebrity garbage and are more self-interested than most groups out there. But it's ok, you can go to church and hate on whatever group you don't like but then go read a useless blog written by a gay Cuban which glorifies gays, blacks and other useless mouths, right? No wonder this country is going to hell so damn quickly. *Bonus points for anyone familiar with the 'useless mouths' comment.

    Re: tyler
    Don't blame anyone. Get off your dead ass and make yourself marketable to the new economy and you don't have to worry about layoffs. Layoffs / companies closing their doors is a direct result of the the demand for their supply (supply & demand…get it?). the demand for traditional newspapers is gone…if you want to blame someone, blame the internet. I'm no fan of Bush myself, but a rudimentary understanding of economics tells you that the president does little to control the economy in general, and to think that he has any effect on a liberal west coast newspaper is laughable.

    Newspapers USED to present THE FACTS—and let you make up your own mind. And there used to be "TWO PAPER" towns, where when the news got "slanted", there were 2 opposing points of view, or at least 2 different outlooks at the news. Most cities only have ONE paper now, staffed by liberal journalists that are pumped out of universities staffed by stodgy old liberal leftovers from the 60's.
    They don't tell their students to "REPORT THE NEWS" , they tell them to "USE THE NEWS TO CHANGE THE WORLD" in the liberal mindset.

    People don't go for that shit anymore. They get their news from the Internet. Straight up and fast.

    Makes you wonder though, how Rush can get a 400 million 8year contract and Air America can't get the listenership and sponsors to stay on the air……..

    Re: sarah – If Obama gets elected we are definitely headed for another depression. He is another far left "liberal" (read Marxist, Communist) who has enslaved the black community and other poor and lazy folks through the welfare system which he proposes to expand beyond what our pocketbooks can bear. Tomorrow is Independence Day. God Bless America. Of course, if you are Obama's friend that should be God Damn Amerika.

    The disappearance of the LA Tiems will be no great thing. 80% of the populaiton of Los Angeles are illegal wet backs mooching off CA welfare. Since 95% of them are tooooooo stuuuuuuuupid to read or learn English they have flooded the city with spanish newspapers and dumbed down television stations. When Obama and his Obamatrons try tot ake over this country we will loose CA to the bean eaters and tequila drinkers.

    I don't know what is worse, the liberal rags like the LA Times or the brain washed young liberals on this site. You sheep need to back away from the Daily Kos, LA Times, NBC,ABC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC,Huffinton Post, etc.., and actually look into things yourself. You will find that you have been brain washed into a liberal sheep.

    There is a reason so called news outlets like the LA Times are cutting jobs and it has nothing to do with GWB. It has to do with they are shoveling shit to the masses and the masses have had enough. The only people who are buying the shit they are shoveling are liberal sheep like yourself. And there are not enough of you sheep to keep them in business. Just like there are not enough of you sheep to carry B. Hussein Obama into the White House in Nov..

    As I stood in one of our major retail shops yesterday (MR. PRICE) to pay for an item, I got to the sales lady and she looked terribly unhappy, I asked her what’s the matter and she told me the whole chain was advised that there will no longer be overtime and that their hours will be cut accordingly. She burst out into tears. Everything has become so expensive here in South Africa and everyone is feeling the pinch, except those “BUSH-WACKED” politicians all over the world. Thanks for nothing. My shopping experience was ruined by your President – now everywhere I go people are moping, no friendly service. I might as well do shopping online – my computer has more personality.

Stop and think about what other people are saying to you instead of insulting them for their thoughts and ideas. THAT'S what's wrong with our country first and foremost. BE OPENMINDED?!!!
